Subject: Another Source worth checking out
If you don't like the mix in this source, I heartily recommend checking out this outstanding AUD MOTB recording that Charlie Miller worked on.
It is really, really worth a listen -- this show is short, but there is a lot of really great stuff in it that the MOTB recording brings out. El Paso and Jack-a-Roe just smoke and the entire second set is excellent in my book.
Subject: Not as good as CM is usual
The upper mids and lower treble are significantly over-emphasized.
Bob's guitar is pratically inaudible.
(Guess that's all not Charlie's fault.)
The show suffers clearly from these drawbacks.
There are others much more worthwhile.
Subject: wierd stuff happening ...
When listening to Shakedown, there is an obvious separation of instruments - but that vastly improves with further listening.The bass is, as mentioned by njpg, very soft. When there are vocals, they are very upfront (i can forgive the nasal), and I can't hear Brent at all until the end of the shakedown. But the clarity is there and again, the blending comes together after Minglewood.
I can see why Lightening/Supplication did not make it thru the 80's. As much as I love Brent, he just cant pull off those back up vocals on those tunes and it makes for hard listening. Bobby seems to start singing songs before the rest of the band is ready for him to start belting it out (el paso- promised) but overall, I have heard worse performances (virtually anything from '93-'94). I can't see giving it more than 3 stars tho, and that's kinda being generous.
Subject: Recording very sub-par for Mr. Miller
No bass, and nasal.
Again Mr.Charlie thanks for the tunes

The show itself is an average Winter 81 show with the MSG and Greensboro run outshining this show by a long shot.
Still great to have with some moments worth the download for.
Althea is the standout of set 1. Great soulful vocals from Jer.
Playin' wrap around has its interesting moments, but never really develops into a second set furry, instead fizzles into a momentum stopping China Doll.
Wheel totes strong vocals (though they do screw it up at the end)
3 star show
5 star transfer and recording (great instrument separation)
Solid 4 stars
